A cool alternative to wedding cake

Over to the bridegroom…

We usually work closely with the bride as we plan a wedding, sharing colour coded lists, excel files and pinterest pages, but Ruth and Sean’s wedding in August was a wedding with a difference: we did 99% of the planning directly with the groom.

‘Simplicity’ and ‘no fuss’ were the key words right from the outset and we worked via skype and email (no shared documents in sight) to create an event in a stunning location with a laid-back feel.

The  symbolic ceremony was held in the courtyard at Villa Casagrande in Figline Valdarno, followed by photos in the gardens with Livio before the aperitivo and dinner. Table decorations were mini olive trees and candles, and buckets of personalised lego to make fridge magnets. Sean is a graphic designer and had taken care of the seating plan, name cards and guest book.

Rather than opting for a traditional wedding cake, we had looked for something a bit different and just before the speeches were about to start an icecream van pulled into the courtyard – a great surprise and perfect for a very warm August evening. Music and dancing followed, with a late night buffet with fresh fruit being served at 11pm.
